I finally got out of the house today and went to Jerry's Artarama. I needed some tracing paper for a project that I am working on. While I was there, I picked up some colored pencils. Tonight I decided to play with them a bit. The following study of an african violet is the result of my "play time". I did the initial drawing in pen. (I wish that I had done it in pencil, since I am not thrilled with how it looks on the flower petals.) However, I love how the leaves turned out. I think they do look fuzzy.

I am so very tired of being sick and having trouble breathing. This afternoon I finally decided that I had to draw something or go mad. (Only another artist would understand that sentiment.) The following pen & ink was in response to the February Pen & Ink Challenge on Wetcanvas. I am very pleased with the results.
